Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Just posting my wish list:-
AX3 petrol AT with the following option packs:-
Additional 5 airbags.
Traction control, Stability control etc. etc.
ADAS.
Sony sound system.
AWD.
Basically I would prefer the AX3 as I don't want the panaromic roof. And 65 profile tyres will be easier on my bones.

Any idea if Mahindra is planning anything of that sort considering the full page ads and freedom drive is already creating the buzz among the public ?
If you think of it, M&M have not even updated their TV ads after the Aug 15 launch. The only advertisement they've officially given after that is the full page ad on newspapers showing all their partners. Yet, the hype in public circles is evident from the crowds that are gathering in many showrooms, even after knowing that we can't even get inside the car which is part of the freedom drive.

There are 50 times more random videos of the 700 in Youtube than official videos from M&M. They're actually letting the public do all the advertising.

Also, I have another question : how many petrol 700s are part of the freedom drive ? Till now I've only seen diesel ones. Is this an indication of how costly petrol 700s are going to be in terms of running cost ?

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Guys, please continue the AWD vs FWD debate on the dedicated thread (Why should one buy a 4WD (4X4 system)/ AWD as against a 4x2?). Any further argumentative posts will be deleted from here.

Thanks for the support & understanding

What's caught my eye was the excessive bouncing of the rear end which is not expected by a vehicle weighing 1630kgs. I am familiar with that stretch of road and XUV was crawling on that patch, so if the speed is higher can't say if it will behave better.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

So what does this say? Did it take the hit well? If the impact was slightly higher we would know how the plastic hatch holds up. This is one aspect I'm slightly wary of, before purchase

+1, I'm too worried about this.
Moreover, I have read the post on Teambhp about rear-end impact on MG Gloster which cost him a lot because of the Plastic damage(all plastic parts in the rear bumper).

Gone are the days where a good 'anonymous' phone call to a 'birdie' inside manufacturer, showroom sales manager catalog leaks, snippets from ARAI tracks, or 'Spotted' aka 'Scoop' threads revealed important data of a car or a model.

A digitally loaded car like the XUV700 with its LED TV upfront and other Gizmos needs a hacker kind of effort to see the data hidden inside its page.

Can't agree more. Hype is too much that public itself is promoting But still I feel Mahindra missed a trick by not going live with IPL.

I am not sure if only Diesel were there but with the FE predictions by the fellow forum members, no wonder if no petrol were present

When does ARAI certifies mileage ? We can get to know that only after car is launched ? Was expecting to see atleast some leaked data ��

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

One reviewer got 12KMPL in Petrol and 17KMPL in Diesel, real world figure. I Expect ARAI to be 5KMPL more, that's all

Thank you sharing the figures. 12 and 17 looks decent though but I assume those were on highway cruising modes.

Yes, general thumb rule is to deduct 20 percent from the ARAI figures to get more or less real world estimate.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

I feel 12KMPL on Petrol is above the expectation. The FE for petrol was guessed to be in the high single digit range consider the weight of the vehicle and engine power output figures.

Very unlikely. My XUV500 (diesel) AT gives me about 9.8 to 10 kmpl (tankful to tankful) in city and may be about 13 kmpl on the highways. I expect similar (or lower) figures for the 7OO in real world for the diesel and about 7-8 kmpl in the city for the petrol AT.

This has to be the highway figure using cruise control at a sensible speed. My puny 1litre turbo petrol in a 1000kg car has returned ~7.5kmpl over 3000kms so no way a 2000kg car with a 2L turbo petrol can deliver anything more than 6kmpl in city traffic
